Deleting a barn door

Using a reciprocating saw to delete an unwanted barn door

Our barn has these stable doors that don't close all the way due to warping.

Instead of trimming a few spots to make them close properly we chose the other option. Deletion.

The original builders used large nails to secure each door hinge to a support beam. It would have been nice to salvage the old rusty hinges, but cutting them out with a reciprocating saw seemed like the smarter choice.
